Bulgaria is in a big crisis in this moment and I doubt that the resignation of Lyuboslav Penev and his replacement with Ivaylo Petev will has some positive effect over the performance of this team.
In the matter of fact, Ivaylo Petev is a compromise solution than some vision for the future and I don’t think that with him this national team will show something different compared with the previous four games in this group against Azerbaijan (2-1 / away), Croatia (0-1 / home), Norway (1-2 / away) and Malta (1-1 / home).
Italy is better and more experienced team than Bulgaria, whose chances to win three points from this visits are really good.
On the other hand, I don’t think that the visitors will win this match with big difference, mainly because of two reasons: first of all – the Italians have some problems with injured players in this moment, among which a key midfielder like Andrea Pirlo and second – Italy has only one win from its previous five visits in Bulgaria (1-3-1 7-7).
